  3. On arrival, we may do a capability test to make sure you are safe before getting on the water.
  4. If you arrive never having had a session before, we won't be able to let you on to the water. Please think before you book as we want to make sure you have a safe and happy experience!
  5. The stretch of river in either direction from the launch area offers lovely scenery full of wildlife.

Should you feel ill after the session, please let us know asap so we can keep track of your progress. Should it worsen, please see your local GP and let them know you have been playing in the river so they can perform the correct medical checks.

Cancellation Policy

For any cancellations or reschedules, we must receive advance notice a minimum 24 hours prior to the session start date.

Battle Archery Ltd reserves the right to cancel a session if:

The group size is inadequate (For Battle Archery Only – Require minimum of 6 participants) or Adverse weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Any cancelled session made by us will be rescheduled to another date and time. We reserve the right to change the session type if for example, the Battle Archery group is too small on the day or if there is too much wind for Aerial Archery. We will adapt the session as required.

If using vouchers, we will only reschedule the session if we have been given advance notice a minimum 24 hours.

If you cancelled on the day, I'm afraid you will lose your activity slot.
